      Hi Piyush,

      An internship is a short-term opportunity wherein you work on real-time projects in an organisation, while a dissertation program is a training program wherein graduate learn to write research proposals/papers.

      To do an internship, you don’t need any specific qualifications (except for some organisations and profiles). If you have the relevant skill set, you can apply to any internship that suits your interest.

      Thanks~ Unnatti
